EP 082: Shlomo Freund – Financial Freedom for Expats
Financial Freedom for Expats Shlomo Freund is a serial entrepreneur.  His latest company is called Free Financial Self, where he helps expats eliminate money as a source of stress and gain confidence in their future finances. He has travelled to 32 countries so far and he lived in China for 3 years as an expat. There he built a company which is still operating called App In China, where he helps foreign companies distribute their app on the Chinese market.  In this episode of The Expat Money Show, we are going to discuss financial freedom for expats.   As promised, from Free Financial Self:   Click Here For Free Net Worth Calculator   Mikkel Thorup and Shlomo Freund discuss how and why expats need help becoming financially free.  I'm sure you won't be surprised! Tips to avoid falling into several traps that steal your hard earned money; however, may be surprising.  Today's episode is all about a system of preparation and follow through to achieve financial freedom for you, the expat.   When we talk about financial freedom for expats, we're not talking about making enough money to live off.  We're discussing how to take the money you do make, and make it work for you.   If you've wondered how entrepreneurs make and keep their money, this is how they do it.   During this interview with Shlomo, he explains that you MUST start at the beginning.  Point A What do you want to happen in 5 years, 10 years, 30 years where do you want to go have you calculated your net-worth?  if not, this needs to be done This is Point A   So what is Point B?  There is so much to know about Point B and Shlomo tells us all how this is done.   Here are some of the concepts Shlomo Freund from Free Financial Self talks about in this episode. Crowd Investing Crowd investing is the term given when a large group of people, the crowd, co-invest in people or business online. CI encompasses both equity and debt forms of investing as well as hybrid forms of the two. Those investing together don't necessarily know each other before they decide to invest   Equity crowdfunding This is perhaps the type of crowd investing that investors are most familiar with. Equity crowdfunding allows businesses to sell shares in their company to ‘the crowd’.    Peer-to-Peer Lending Peer-to-peer lending, also abbreviated as P2P lending, is the practice of lending money to individuals or businesses through online services that match lenders with borrowers   Mikkel asks, 'how different is this from being a Digital Nomad?  Shlomo explains in full detail.   During this interview, Mikkel asks some really great questions for Shlomo to walk you all through what it would be like for you if you can see what it is you desire for your life. What is most important to you? Do you want to get married in 5 years? Start having a family in 8 years? What about retirement?   Let's say you are 25 right now, what do you do?  Where do you start?  Before you know it, 20 years has flown by, you're 45 years old and you haven't saved a penny.  You did get married but didn't have the wedding you really wanted or haven't been able to give your children what they want or deserve.   Why?   Because you didn't have a plan to get where you wanted to go.  At Free Financial Self, this is what Shlomo helps entrepreneurs at any stage of their life get. Financial freedom for expats is doable and if this is important to you, then I urge you strongly to listen to this episode.  It really is fascinating!   Shlomo discusses 3 different Crowd Investing platforms that he uses.  Here are the links as we promised from the episode: Envestio Crowdestor Kuetzal   Related Articles & Podcasts You Might Enjoy as an Entrepreneur I loved this episode with Nydia Monarrez - With 56 Million Hispanic Americans, here's a little help if you want to market to them.

081: Joel Nagel – 2019 Best Countries for Citizenship by Investment and Residency by Investment
2019 Best Countries for Citizenship by Investment and Residency by Investment Joel Nagel, from Nagel & Associates Law in Pittsburgh, PA is our guest today to talk about Citizenship by Investment and Residency by Investment programs and the options that are available to the globally-minded individual.  In EP 63 of the Expat Money Show, Joel talked in depth about Asset Protection.  Today we have him and really go deep on Citizenship by Investment and specifically about Cyprus Residency Program and obtaining a second passport.  What a huge topic, and I know you're going to love it.  Go someplace quiet with a pen and notepad because you're going to want to take notes! Joel Nagel is arguably one of the most famous and well-respected lawyers in this space on the planet and has helped hundreds of clients from all over the globe to get a second residency and second passport abroad.   What is Citizenship by Investment or CBI? Let's start with what is Citizenship by Investment? or CBI? We will shorten it to CBI if that's okay with you There are multiple ways to get second citizenship in countries other than where you were born.  It's an old concept, one that is quoted in the bible some 2000 years ago.  Things have obviously changed since then, but the concept remains the same.  You were born into one country. And that country, along with its political ties and socio-economic platforms, have a passport that has rules attached.  Some passports are exceptional like Singapore and others are crap, like Iraq. The modern concept of Citizenship by Investment is only about 25 years old.  Each year more and more countries get on board as they see their neighbouring countries being infused with new cash and a more stable economy. The idea of CBI is that you can either trade cash or buy real estate to obtain residency or citizenship into a new country. Each country has different rules because they all have different needs.  Countries like the US and Canada were built on immigrants coming from European countries. They were told that life would be better in Canada and the immigration laws were very easy to get residency.  Today, the laws are considerably stricter and to become a Canadian citizen can take 5 years or more.  Likewise for the US and obtaining their Green Card.   What is Residency by Investment Residency by Investment can be obtained much quicker than CBI.  You apply for permanent residency in a country and from there it can still take 5 years.  Often you only have to be in the country 1 day every year or 1 week.  Not everyone needs a passport, they just want to live somewhere if something happens to their country.   How Much Does it Cost Mikkel and Joel Nagel talk about the cost of obtaining both residency by investments and citizenship by investment in different countries.  When you are ready to sit down and discuss where you want to live, there are questions that the lawyers will ask you.  For instance: What is your budget How quickly do you want it When do you want to go Where do you want to live   Mikkel asks, Is that investment in the Passport? OR is there an investment and you get the passport as a by-product.  Listen as Joel Nagel explains this concept in detail. Cyprus Citizenship by Investment Cyrpus has an amazing program for those that want to invest in property to become citizens of Cyprus.  2 Million Euros and in 6 months you have permanent residency.  The funds stay in escrow but you own the property when it is complete and when you want to move or sell the property and leave the country, you can and you reap the benefits of a good real estate market. Cyrpus only opens up 700 applications for this program every year. But if you do the math, 700 x 2 million euros, that's 1,4B Euros infused into the economy.  Every year.  There are some additional fees like 5% VAT.   Bulgaria Citizenship by Investment Bulgaria is similar to Malta.

EP 080: Dr. Sean McFate – How the New Face of War Will Affect You and Your Investments
How the New Face of War Will Affect You and Your Investments. Dr. Sean Mcfate is a strategic maverick. He is an author, novelist, and expert in foreign policy and national security strategy and is a professor of strategy at the National Defense University and Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. He began his career as a paratrooper and officer in the U.S. Army’s storied 82nd Airborne Division. Among his many experiences, he dealt with warlords, raised small armies, worked with armed groups in the Sahara, transacted arms deals in Eastern Europe, and helped prevent an impending genocide in the Rwanda region. Looking forward as the new face of war and the new rules of war. After reading his newest book, The New Rules of War: Victory in the Age of Durable Disorder, you will agree, it is fantastic. And I have heard, it is generating a lot of discussion inside the Pentagon.   How Do You Become a Mercenary? Dr. Sean McFate shares his early years in the 1990s where it all began.  From his life as a paratrooper to working for a private military company in Africa in the 2000s. His story is one we only hear about in action movies and spy game novels.  But this, however, was Dr. McFate's life, and the lives of many many people.  We try to think that maybe things like this don't happen to real people, that it is a concept for the movies, but let me tell you, these people are real and they have been in existence for thousands of years.  He was a private military contractor which is a euphemism for a mercenary. In this interview with Dr. Sean McFate, Mikkel asks the hard questions.  Make sure you listen to this compelling interview.   Before we go too much further, let's get some definitions out of the way.  It's important you understand what we're talking about in this interview.   Definitions Mercenary Mercenary: noun  1.  a professional soldier hired to serve in a foreign army. A person employed to fight in an armed conflict who is not a member of the state or military group for which they are fighting and whose prime or sole motivation is private gain. Lexicon for the word Mercenary: lexicon noun: the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge. "the size of the English lexicon" People think of villains, that Soldiers are wives and Mercenaries are prostitutes.  They think of the 1960's Congo, Murderous people killing people.  But nothing could be farther from the truth. Soldier Soldier (noun): an enlisted man or woman who serves in an army Army Army, regular army, ground forces(noun):  a permanent organization of the military land forces of a nation or state Hegemon: something (such as a political state) having dominant influence or authority over others: one possessing hegemony Has it Always Been This Way in the Face of War Mikkel Thorup and Dr. Sean McFate discuss Balkanisation which is a geopolitical term for the process of fragmentation or division of a region or state into smaller regions or states that are often hostile or uncooperative with one another. Balkanization is a result of foreign policies creating geopolitical fragmentation, as has happened in the namesake Balkan region under the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian empire, and later in Yugoslavia. What Else is Discussed & Why You Should Listen In Fortune 500 Companies and their involvement Why We Are Losing the War Chechnian War - How could this happen and will it happen again Who IS winning the war? 10 Rules to Win - Rule #10 - Victory is fungible 3 Warfare Strategy with China: Influence ~ Lawfare ~ Economic Power and so much more!   The Modern Mercenary The first book written by Dr. Sean Mcfate was The Modern Mercenary. The Modern Mercenary leverages a detailed analysis of private military companies and their role in recent wars to reveal a broader and more disturbing global trend: the dissipation of the c...

EP 078: Brandon Pearce -Travelling the Globe World Schooling your Children
Travelling the Globe World Schooling your Children Brandon Pearce is the creator of Family Adventure Academy, an annual live event for families interested in long-term travel, location independence, alternative education, entrepreneurship, community, deepening family relationships, and more.  With his wife and 3 children, they have been travelling the world for the past 10 years, visiting over 40 countries and world schooling their children along the way.   “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did.” ~ Mark Twain   What's the difference between world schooling, homeschooling, and unschooling.   World Schooling World Schooling is an opportunity to let your children grow at their own pace. To develop the confidence to turn strangers into friends knowing that you are there close-by while they need you. With world schooling, children learn from real-life experiences. They can learn naturally about the places they go, the people they meet and the experiences they have. Imagine learning about the pyramids by travelling down the Nile River in Egypt; volcanos at the top of Mount Vesuvius; the Amazon rain forest on a riverboat cruise down the Amazon River, about Buddhism in Thailand.     Homeschooling Homeschooling, also known as home education is the education of children at home or a variety of other places. Home education is usually conducted by a parent or tutor or online teacher. Many families use less formal ways of educating. "Homeschooling" is the term commonly used in North America, whereas "home education" is commonly used in the United Kingdom, Europe, and in many Commonwealth countries.   Unschooling Unschooling is an educational method and philosophy that advocates learner-chosen activities as a primary means for learning. Students learn through their natural life experiences including play, household responsibilities, personal interests and curiosity, internships and work experience, travel, books, elective classes, family, mentors, and social interaction. Unschooling encourages exploration of activities initiated by the children themselves, believing that the more personal learning is the more meaningful, well-understood and therefore useful it is to the child. While courses may occasionally be taken, unschooling questions the usefulness of standard curricula, conventional grading methods, and other features of traditional schooling in the education of each unique child.     World schooling and homeschooling is always a hot topic here on the Expat Money Show.  We've had several guests that decided that living the life of an Expat Entrepreneur was the way to go. Sam McRoberts from the USA is one of them.  Running his SEO Company, Vudu Marketing from the road, along with his wife and son, they are travelling the world while world schooling.  This episode was fantastic, and even if you've listened to it once, it's worth listening to again.   If you're still not satisfied that Unschooling is what's best for your children, here's an article that Mikkel Thorup wrote last year.  It will open your eyes to what's going on with traditional education. MY EXPERIENCE WITH GOVERNMENT RUN SCHOOLS – AND WHAT I REALIZED AFTER READING WEAPONS OF MASS INSTRUCTION BY JOHN TAYLOR GATTO     Pearce On Earth In the past 10 years, Brandon Pearce and his family have visited over 40 countries, starting with Costa Rica. They have volunteered at rescue centers and schools, experienced some of the earth’s most inspiring natural and man-made wonders, visited with people from all walks of life, and stayed in accommodations from people’s floors and hostels to 5-star resorts. They have attended retreats, conferences, classes, and camps, and had several major identity crises and relationship drama along the way. Hence, Pearce On Earth was born.  They realized along the way that so many people wanted to experience somet...

EP 073: Dr. Jack Wheeler – The Real Indiana Jones ~ One Of The Greatest Explorers Of Our Time
The Real Indiana Jones ~ One Of The Greatest Explorers Of Our Time Dr. Jack Wheeler has been described by The Wall Street Journal as “The Real Indiana Jones”.  His lifelong accomplishments are so impressive that it’s hard to pick just a few.  Many would say that he is one of the greatest explorers of our time and the most interesting man of modern times.   Dr. Jack Wheeler  ~ The Real Indiana Jones At age 12 he was the youngest Eagle Scout in American history and travelled to the White House to meet President Eisenhower. At 14 he was the youngest person to summit the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps. In 1979 he led an expedition retracing, for the first time in history, Hannibal’s route over the Alps with Elephants. In 1981, he set the world record for the Most Northerly Parachute Jump: at 90°North, free-falling right onto the North Pole. And in 1996 he defeated both Vladimir Putin and his KGB bodyguard in arm wrestling in Kelly's Irish Times bar on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.   After receiving his Ph.D. in Aristotelian ethics from the University of Southern California in 1976, Dr. Jack Wheeler wrote his first book, The Adventurer’s Guide, the first how-to handbook to becoming an adventurer oneself.   In the same year, 1976,  Dr. Jack Wheeler founded Wheeler Adventures, later to become Wheeler Expeditions, with the goal of leading anyone with an intrepid spirit and a positive attitude on thrilling journeys all around the world.  He has designed and led unique, first-class adventures to exotic locations all around the world.   Mikkel Thorup and Dr. Wheeler talk about his Ph.D. in Aristotelian Ethics and discuss this statement: A life of Eudaimonia is a life of striving. It’s a life of pushing yourself to your limits and finding success. A Eudaimonistic life will be full of the happiness that comes from achieving something really difficult, rather than just having it handed to you. Having a Ph.D. in Aristotelian Ethics led Dr. Jack Wheeler to explore the world in a unique and thought-provoking way.  He asked questions of others that were compelling.  This episode is so interesting in so many ways.   If you're like me, you wonder how people like Jack Wheeler and my previous guests can live a life filled with intrigue, espionage, and wonderment.  In this episode, we talk about all of that and more!  Please don't miss this amazing chat with The Real Life Indiana Jones!  You will love it!   I absolutely love learning from my guests who have lived their lives to the fullest and have so many amazing and insightful stories.  Stories that only they can tell, stories that don't happen to a countless number of people, only to them.   Listen in to EP 036: Jim Rogers wherein 2002, arriving back home in NYC after completing his third Guinness World Record being on the road for 3 years, covering more than 245,000 kilometres in a one-of-a-kind Mercedes-Benz taking them to six continents and 116 countries.

EP 071: John Perkins – Confessions of an Economic Hitman – Yesterday and Today!
Confessions of an Economic Hitman - Yesterday and Today! John Perkins was an Economic Hitman.  After finishing Business School, he wanted to join the Peace Corp.  Around the same time, he had a job interview with the NSA.  Their assessment of him was that he would make the perfect Economic Hitman and they encouraged him to join the Peace Corp.  There he was thrown into the jungles of the Amazon River.  He learned how to survive, to speak another language and understand how developing nations worked.    After the Peace Corps, John was the  Chief Economist at a major international consulting firm.  He advised the World Bank, United Nations, IMF, U.S. Treasury Department, Fortune 500 corporations, and leaders of countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.   You may ask, what is an Economic Hitman? and how did John Perkins come to write a book called "Confessions of an Economic Hitman?"   John Perkins life and the life of all Economic Hitman from around the globe are what action thriller movies are made of.  Intrigue and espionage.  Government coup and presidential assassination.   John tells us stories of working with Prime Ministers, Presidents, and Heads of States of several Countries around the Globe during the 1970s.  John Perkins was told he was doing good work, that the only way to help developing countries was to get them huge loans to build schools, infrastructure and more.  However, the reality was that the money wasn't going to the countries involved, it was going to large corporations inside the USA who would build the roads and the schools and the countries would be left with a huge debt that they couldn't possibly pay off.   Mikkel Thorup and John Perkins talk in depth about: The story behind the story Iran Regime Change - the origin Jamie Raldos - Ecuador president assassinated Omar Torrijos - Panama president assassinated Iraq - Saddam Hussein 3 stages - economic hitman - jackals - military Corporatocracy   Confessions Of An Economic Hitman Confessions Of An Economic Hitman took 14 years to write.  It provides Perkins' account of his career with engineering consulting firm Chas.

T. Main Let's Talk About 'What is a Capitalist'? A capitalist is a person who uses their wealth to invest in trade and industry for profit in accordance with the principles of capitalism. Likewise, Capitalism is an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.   What Is Corporatocracy Corporatocracy is a term used to refer to an economic and political system controlled by corporations or corporate interests. It is most often used as a term to describe the economic situation in a particular country.  This is different from corporatism, which is the organization of society into groups with common interests. Corporatocracy as a term is often used by observers across the political spectrum.   How Can we Change our Perceptions To be successful we need to change our perceptions.  And how can we change our perceptions?  We need to create a lifestyle, to create companies, to create a business' that look to the long term benefits not just the short term benefits for all.   We need to protect the only planet we have right now, be conscientious and do the right thing for future generations, and we need to work together to make huge changes.   He is an author & activist committed to transforming the world into a sustainable, just, and peaceful place where all beings thrive.   How to Reach John Perkins John Perkins is a founder and board member of Dream Change and The Pachamama Alliance,

EP 068: Gunnar Garfors – Travel Adventurer Visits Every Country In The world! Not Once But Twice!
Travel Adventurer Visits Every Country In The world! Not Once But Twice! Gunnar Garfors is a Norwegian media professional, traveler, and author who has circumnavigated the globe, visiting every country in the world. Not once, but twice!  Author of Nowhere, his newest book walks us through the 20 least visited countries in the world.   The first time for Gunnar Garfors was on May 8th, 2013.  He entered the 198th and last country, Cape Verde, as a  37 years-and-344-days-old, which made him the youngest person to visit all the countries of the world while working full-time, or as a hobby traveler.     Recently, he became the first person to have visited every country in the world TWICE.  Consequently, while accomplishing this amazing feat, he has set several Guinness World Records.   Guinness World Record ~  5 Countries on 5 Continents in just one day ~  19 Countries in 24 hours ~  22 US states in 24 hours     Travel Changes You Gunnar Garfors says he's a Globetrotter and seeing the world has opened his eyes in so many ways that he would like to inspire others to do the same, or at least travel more.   We hear that a lot from our guests that are avid travelers.  They all agree, Travel Changes You!  And almost always for the best!     Travel Makes People Unite We've had some pretty awesome guests on our show.  With Mikkel being such an avid traveller himself, he loves to hear stories about exotic and unknown countries.  In Ep 60: Doug Casey or Ep: Frank Bures - we talk about dangerous adventures in Africa, really a fascinating episode.  If you haven't listened in yet, definitely go back and enjoy!   Nowhere - The 20 Least Visited Countries in the World Gunnar Garfors newest book, Nowhere - The 20 Least Visited Countries is due in Norway bookstores this April.  The rest of the world will have to wait until later this year!  The concept behind his new book Nowhere is to showcase the 20 least visited countries in the world.   Mikkel does his very best to figure out which 20 countries out of 198 are the least visited!  It's quite funny really as Mikkel manages to figure out about 1/2 of them.  Gunnar Garfors talks about a few in this wonderful interview. He recounts stories of how he got into some of these war-torn countries and lived to tell the tale.  Countries like Comoros, Africa getting 28,000 visitors a year. Why don't more visit this tiny island nation?  What's there to attract tourism?  What can be done to bring more tourists?   If countries like Comoros, or any other island nation interests you, you must go back and listen to Ep 031: James Ellsmoor as he talks about small island nations and the problems that they deal with today.   We talk about the South Pacific.  Countries you may not have heard of, and why most don't go for a visit. It's usually not that they are not beautiful in their own right, it's usually infrastructure, government policies, etc.   Have you always wondered what countries like Iran and North Korea would be like to visit?  Mikkel and Gunnar have both been...fascinating how they both felt the same about these two beautiful countries.   How about South Sudan, Yemen or Somalia?  What does it take to enter into these countries? Are you somewhat interested?  Have the wars destroyed the natural beauty of the landscape? Gunnar has been twice, to all of these countries and has found in some cases, drastic changes from the first visit to the last visit.   Books by Gunnar Garfors "198: How I ran out of Countries" "Nowhere - 20 Least Visited Countries" due to come out in April 2019 in Norway and the rest of the world later in 2019   How to Reach Gunnar Garfors www.garfors.com   FINAL THOUGHTS What a fun interview with Gunnar Garfors.

Is Speculating Evil? Generate Additional Streams Of Income As An Independent Speculator. Lobo Tiggre is the founder, CEO, and principal analyst and editor at Louis James, LLC and The Independent Speculator.  He has dedicated his work to the causes for free markets and individual liberty and is currently a member of the board of directors of Liberty International.  He is a writer and publisher with many books to his name, along with co-authoring two of Doug Casey books from International Man; whom he worked alongside with for 16 years writing under the pen name ‘Louis James’.   Speculator "a person who invests in stocks, property, or other ventures in the hope of making a profit" I know many of you want to know if it's safe? are there risks involved? how much money can I make? or lose?  Do I need a University degree to be a Speculator?   What Does It Take to be a Top Notched Speculator? Lobo Tiggre explains what makes a great speculator.  Is it different than a gambler?  What are the important distinctions between the two?   When you hear the word 'Speculator' what comes to mind?  Mikkel Thorup and Lobo Tiggre discuss this as a profession or how becoming a Speculator could be an additional source of income.   We talk about how Gold is mined?  where is it mined? What does gold mining look like in the beginning, with the Geologists and coming in contact with illegal miners.  Lobo Tiggre tells a story about how creative locals can be when they believe there is something of value in the land they own.  In Africa, many countries have a rule for artisan miners.  If you can dig out of the ground by hand on your ancestral grounds with hand tools than that's free for you.     Additional Streams of Income After 67 episodes of The Expat Money Show, we have a few recurring themes with our guests and that is how to create additional streams of income. As an Expat we feel that it's important to have at least one additional stream of income and there are so many to choose from.  In Episode 058: Pete Sisco, we talk about how to start an online business so you can safely leave the rat race.  In episode 044: Ian Bond, we talk about E-Commerce and Drop Shipping.   This episode with Lobo Tiggre is another way to add additional streams of income. Becoming a Speculator.  I believe you will really get a ton of value from this episode, so make sure to listen to all of the stories that Lobo shares with us, they are really incredible.   Even in episode 036: with Jim Rogers, he explains why these types of professions are so important!   Who is Louis James? "Louis James” was legendary speculator Doug Casey’s protégé at Casey Research for almost 14 years, until early 2018. By 2007, he was writing and making investment recommendations in Casey’s flagship newsletter, the International Speculator. Now he brings his experience, his connections, and his deal flow directly to you, without the barrage of marketing hype used by larger publishers with his newsletter, Independent Speculator.   We have had the privilege to interview several members of International Man.  One of our most recent was episode 65: Joel Bowman  If you haven't listened in yet, you'll love our chat with Joel.   Independent Speculator The Independent Speculator is Lobo Tiggre's flagship monthly publication. It delivers actionable ideas, information, and analysis via disclosure and discussion of actual investments they make. This is not a theoretical approach to speculation. The trades are real.

EP 066: Christoph Heuermann – Free Private City Project in Honduras and Alternative Investments in Walnut Farms Overseas
Free Private City Project in Honduras and Alternative Investments in Walnut Farms Overseas. In this interview with Christoph Heuermann, we talk in detail about Libertarian concepts like his association with the Free Private City Project in Honduras; plus, alternative investments in Walnut farms overseas. Christoph Heuermann has been to 140 countries as of this interview. That's pretty impressive for sure, and along the way, he does his best to understand the culture and the way of life that each country offers.  When an alternative investment presents itself he has a better understanding of how the idea can play out.   Libertarian Concepts So the theme for today's interview with Christoph Heuermann was to look at alternative ways to make investments.  Most would consider these Libertarian concepts.  Things we were not taught in school, and not taught in University economic classes.  So where do you learn about these Libertarian concepts?   Great question for our listeners!   Alternative Investments "Alternative Investments are investments or funds that invest in asset classes other than stocks, bonds, and cash.  The term is a relatively loose one and includes tangible assets such as precious metals, arts, wine, antiques, coins, or stamps and some financial assets such as real estate" Christoph Heuermann walks us through how he defines Alternative Investments and the risks involved.  Risks can be anything from the local government buying back the land you've purchased, or bad weather for agriculture.  Listen in to hear more!   Investing in Walnut Farms Alternative Investments like investing in walnut farms may seem like an unusual concept, but as we listen to Christoph Heuermann talk in depth about how it all begins and how each year plays out, we can get a feel for why so many leave the traditional investments and look elsewhere for healthy returns. Walnut Farm   Free Private City Project After listening to this podcast regarding Free Private City Project in Honduras, you may be asking for more.  If we could go back in time, even 50 years ago, and invest some money in Singapore or Hong Kong, would you do it?  Of course you would!  Free Private City Project could be just that; the twist will be the Libertarian concepts applied.  Take notes from this episode, lots to learn!   How to Reach Christoph Heuermann www.tax-free.today christoph.today personal blog   FINAL THOUGHTS Fascinating interview with Christoph Heuermann from Tax-Free.today.  I'm certainly intrigued about the Libertarian concept of the Free Private City Project in Honduras.  I truly believe that this interview will help many of our subscribers see a brighter future.   If you would like to stay up to date with all new content that comes out at The Expat Money Show make sure you sign up below for our newsletter; EMS Pulse. – My behind the scene daily correspondence where I give you all the intel as I travel the world and build my business, develop key relationships and invest in non-traditional investments overseas (very profitably I might add!)     Sign up below!

Grab our brand new infographic report called "15 Global Strategies to Protect Your Wealth" for free that Joel and I created.   Interview with Joel Nagel Joel Nagel is an internationally-recognized lawyer, visionary, and strategic thinker. He has been featured in countless business publications across the world and quoted in U.S. News & World Report as well as in Forbes Magazine. He is the founder and managing partner of Nagel & Associates, LLC, which specializes in international law, estate planning, global commercial transactions, and asset protection.  And has been the Ambassador to Austria and other countries in Europe.   What are the Offshore Markets? We start the episode off with two important definitions: What is Asset Protection? and What are the Offshore Markets?   Investopedia's Definition of Offshore "What is Offshore? - "Offshore" refers to a location outside of one's national boundaries, whether or not that location is land- or water-based. The term "offshore" may be used to describe foreign banks, corporations, investments and deposits. A company may legitimately move offshore for the purpose of tax avoidance or to enjoy relaxed regulations."   I ask Joel Nagel some questions like: "Why do you use the offshore markets? Is there anything illegal, dodgy, or unethical about using the offshore markets in this manner?"   What is Asset Protection? Investopedia's Definition of Asset Protection: "Asset protection is the concept of and strategies for guarding one's wealth. Asset protection is a type of financial planning intended to protect one's assets from creditor claims. Individuals and business entities use asset protection techniques to limit creditors' access to certain valuable assets while operating within the bounds of debtor-creditor law."   I also ask Joel Nagel some questions about asset protection like: "Why do we need asset protection? Why don't people just use a normal asset protection lawyer and keep things onshore, or inside the USA?"   Hear how Joel Nagel describes asset protection and why he decided to practice this field of law, and the very personal reasons for doing so as it will help you understand why asset protection is so important.   Estate Planning Joel talks about how using the offshore markets and international trusts are more than just asset protection. Estate Planning is often just as important and is one of the three main reasons people go down this road. Listen in to the complete episode to hear the third major reason you might want to consider the offshore markets for more than just asset protection. Hear how the offshore markets can set your family up for generational wealth with Estate Planning and how you can responsibly pass your wealth on to your descendants.   How To Protect Your Assets In this interview with Joel Nagel, we go into depth on multiple strategies you can use to make creditors double think about coming after you and attorneys terrified to even consider suing you.

EP 062: Ronald Stöferle – Author of In Gold We Trust Report Talks Predictions And China’s Role In Gold Markets
Author of In Gold We Trust Report Talks Predictions And China's Role In Gold Markets. In this episode of The Expat Money Show, we speak to Ronald Stöferle, author of In Gold We Trust Report.  We talk about the relationship between The Austrian School of Economics And The Gold Standard.  Also, China's Role In Gold Markets, and his Gold Prediction 2019.   Ronald Stöferle Ronald Stöferle is one of four managing partners in Incrementum AG, an independent investment and asset management company based in Liechtenstein. They specialize in a holistic form of asset management and professional portfolio management for retail investors.  Along with his partner Mark Valek, they have created an annual gold report, In Gold We Trust Report, which is the gold standard of all gold studies.     The Austrian School of Economics And The Gold Standard I ask Ronald Stöferle about The Austrian School of Economics and the Gold Standard and their relationship together.  Ronald explains it is not so much about gold and the gold standard.  The Austrian School of Economics is a way to look at investing in general and how investing and monetary flow fits into our world. Listen in to hear Ronald Stöferle's views on The Austrian School of Economics and the Gold Standard in his own words.     China's Role In Gold Markets China's role in gold markets is extremely interesting.  Obviously, we know that governments like China are using gold as a way to hedge against inflation, and as Ronald Stöferle explains in this interview it's pretty much a non-secret that China holds a considerable amount more gold than they are reporting to the rest of the world. Listen to Ronald Stöferle's stories of visiting Shanghai and his opinions on China's role in gold markets.   Gold Prediction 2019 We discuss not only gold predictions for 2019 but also for 5 and 10 years out. Will it be 5k an oz? 6k an oz? Listen to today's interview with Ronald Stöferle to hear where he thinks gold is heading.  And as importantly, WHY he believes it will go in that direction.   In Gold We Trust Report In Gold We Trust Report is the gold standard in gold reports. Last year it was downloaded more than 1.7 million times and is available in English and German (2019 will also be available in Chinese). The report is now more than 230 pages long and has taken a team of analysts months of work to compile. Listen in to hear Ronald Stöferle explain how he has tried to incorporate an Austrian School of Economics view of the world in his report and how he uses fun easily understood examples of the value of gold in relation to things like the price of 1L of beer at Octoberfest in Munich, or gold in relation to the price of a ticket to Walt Disney World. Ronald Stöferle and his team do a fantastic job of explaining gold in a way that anyone can understand.  I guess that's why the In Gold We Trust Report is so wildly popular! Download your copy for free and learn more about what Ronald Stöferle and his team do here: https://InGoldWeTrust.report     FINAL THOUGHTS Obviously, by listening to this episode, you will see I am massively into tracking and understanding the gold markets and how it relates to the financial affairs for Expats around the world.  I see this as a worldwide currency that combats out of control governments from completely eroding our wealth. One of the best ways you can store your gold and silver is through an Offshore Vault company which I talk about in detail here.   I hope you got as much value from this interview with Ronald Stöferle as I did… and if you would like to stay up to date with all new content that comes out at The Expat Money Show make sure you sign up below for our newsletter; EMS Pulse. – my behind the scene daily correspondence where I give you all the intel as I travel the world and build my business, develop key relationships and invest in non-traditional investments overseas (very profitably I might add!...

EP 061: Olivier Wagner – CPA Gives A Masterclass In How To Renounce US Citizenship
CPA Gives A Masterclass In How To Renounce US Citizenship. In this episode of The Expat Money Show, we interview Oliver Wagner to talk about a very controversial subject.  That is,  how to renounce US citizenship. We get answers to questions like: Why do people renounce their US citizenship? What is an Accidental American? How To Renounce US Citizenship? What are the pros and cons of renouncing US citizenship? What are the tax implications of renouncing US citizenship? and How much does it cost to renounce US citizenship?     Notes on Today's Interview with Oliver Wagner You may be asking yourself, is this for me?  Let me tell you, this is not for 99% of the population. However,  for a certain portion of my audience, it is extremely valuable.   In my research, I've found a lack of reliable information for American Citizens who want to renounce their citizenship.   We get into details why some people choose to do this and I am not saying people should do this, but for certain Expats, it really does make sense.   Americans are taxed on worldwide income no matter where they live… so it can mean tens of thousands of dollars in taxes every year.   I will also tell you that this interview is really dense.  It is a Masterclass in how to renounce your citizenship, by a CPA who does this every day, all day.   This interview is so packed full of information I decided to have the entire episode transcribed.  This way you can go through it carefully.  The transcription is at the bottom of the show notes for today's interview.   To access the transcript for this interview, go to the bottom of the page and download the PDF.     Who is Olivier Wagner Today's guest is an IRS Enrolled Agent and CPA (Certified Public Accountant) who specializes in tax services for US expats.  He is the best selling author of ‘U.S. Taxes for Worldly Americans' and with his company, 1040 Abroad, his goal is to eliminate tax anxiety - by helping expatriates become US tax compliant.     Why do people renounce their US citizenship? There are a whole host of reasons people renounce their US citizenship.  The main reason is the tax implications.   Oliver Wagner explains that it is often not the taxes themselves that people owe money for.  It is the fee from their CPA or accountant who must file their tax return every year.   Add to this all the yearly bureaucratic paperwork that goes into filing your taxes,  renouncing your citizenship makes sense.   Make sure to listen in to this complete episode with Olivier Wagner.   Or you can download the transcripts at the bottom of this page to get the full explanation.     What is an Accidental American? Who should consider renouncing their US citizenship? An Accidental American is someone who has dual citizenship and does not live in the USA. Perhaps they never actually lived in the USA at all.  They may have been born there or one of their parents are American, so they are subject to citizen-based taxation.  Or, as it is often referred to as worldwide taxation.   If you are an American citizen or American green card holder and earn more than $10,000 a year it is your obligation to file a tax return no matter where you live in the world.   If you are an American taxpayer and live as an Expat feel free to fill out the form at the bottom of this page for recommendations on a competent and trustworthy Expat CPA,  like Olivier Wagner, who can file your taxes for you. It is worth every penny to hire a great CPA for your Expat taxes.  They will help navigate the entire process and can often save you considerable amounts of money, certainly more than you have to pay them.   Once again, it is mandatory to be tax compliant and we are able to help accidental Americans and other American Expats become tax compliant in a straightforward and expert manner.   Although I do not believe income tax is just or right I never advise anyone t...

Form a theory or conjecture about a subject without firm evidence. 2. Invest in stocks, property, or other ventures in the hope of gain but with the risk of loss   In this interview with Doug Casey, we wanted to know how Doug got started in Speculating and travel and becoming an anarchist.  What happened in his life for him to wake up one day and realize that the world that he knew was in trouble and what could he do to survive and be happy in what he saw as chaos on the horizon.   International Man If you are lucky enough to find Doug Casey's original writings of 'International Man' count yourself extremely lucky.  This book really is a must for any Libertarian or Anarchist.  Doug talks about editing this 1976 edition to talk about what is happening today and for tomorrow, and we're very excited for him to write the new 'International Man'.   Singularity "A hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence and other technologies have become so advanced that humanity undergoes a...

EP 055: Bobby Casey – An Expat Anarchist Explains How Blockchain Can Replace Government
An Expat Anarchist Explains How Blockchain Can Replace Government. In this interview with Bobby Casey, we talk about the definition of an Anarchist and how blockchain and anarchy give you true personal freedom. We also touch on the definition of a Libertarian and what the differences between this and Anarchy is. Bobby Casey is an expat anarchist who believes that blockchain is the way of the future, creating smart contracts for just about anything you want, and a way to replace the government.   Like so many of our guests, at 19 years old, Bobby Casey only lasted 1 year in college before realizing that this was not how he wanted to spend his life, taking 4 years of college to start working for someone else.  Coming from an Entrepreneurial family, Bobby Casey was destined to become a leader, to help others live a better life.   After many attempts and failures, Bobby Casey hit a home run with a company that grew into an $8 Million venture.  Then something happened that no one saw coming.  A new company on the block came along with a new, better software platform.  In Bobby Casey's words: they got their asses kicked.   His company, along with a lot of his competitors, could not compete and eventually many of them shut down.  By the time these large companies realized that this new company with fantastic software couldn't deliver, it was too late.  The good news for Bobby was that he sold his venture for a nice profit.   So with money in hand, he recalled family dinner topics.  Like, 'how to properly structure an LLC, asset protection, and investments'  Even as a 14-year-old he was part of the family discussions and recalled them later in life realizing that he didn't want to pay high taxes, and wondered how he could protect himself from liability.   The Next Step Bobby Casey talks us through how in 2007,  his company Global Wealth Protection came about.  Where he started, why it was so important for him and who he works with.  As Bobby realized, he needed to plug his holes, so his friends were likely in the same boat.   In this interview with Bobby Casey we spend a ton of time talking about the Blockchain and Anarchy, also: Crypto Currency Gold & Silver Stock Market Overseas Real estate Block Chain is the way of the future Decentralized currency Smart Contracts   What's the Difference Between a Libertarian and an Anarchist Answer: About 7 years!  As Bobby would say!  Once you've made the decision to become a Libertarian, it takes 7 years to make the move to being a full-blown Anarchist!   Definition of a Libertarian The definition of a libertarian is a person who believes in free will.   Definition of an Anarchist The definition of an Anarchists are people who want to live under their own authority. They are against having a political party making the rules.  Anarchists are extremely peaceful, but when pushed they will take action. Also, the definition of an anarchist is a person who rebels against any authority, established order, or ruling power.   Blockchain and Anarchy You might be wondering how Blockchain and Anarchy could solve the problems with how governments currently run, so we could move away from traditional government and no longer have lines in the sand. 100 years ago we had around 100 countries; today, we have 193...why?   How to Reach Bobby Casey www.globalwealthprotection.com info@globalwealthprotection.com   I hope you got as much value from this interview with Bobby Casey as I did… and if you would like to stay up to date with all new content that comes out at The Expat Money Show make sure you sign up below for our newsletter; EMS Pulse. – my behind the scene daily correspondence where I give you all the intel as I travel the world and build my business, develop key relationships and invest in non-traditional investments overseas (very profitably I might add!)   Sign up below!

Do you have to work harder and longer than anyone else? or are their 'hacks' for becoming one of the greats in your lifetime?  Is there someone you emulate and want to be just like? and have you wondered how they got there?   Can you change YOUR life and become all that you want, without huge sacrifices? or is it possible?   Have you ever wondered if you could become a better boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse?  what about a better parent or is it all in the genes we were dealt?   Would you like the skill to get up on stage fearless? write a book? learn how to code? be a mathematician?  or do these ideas scare you enough to not even give them a try?  Does the thought go through your mind, 'these skills must be for the brave, the fearless, the brainiacs of our time.  I couldn't possibly achieve all that's out there'.     How to Get Super Powers Jonathan Levi and Mikkel Thorup talk about all of this.  They talk about how to get super human powers and becoming a SuperLearner and that we can all achieve what we most desire.  And yes, there is work involved, this is not about a mantra that says, 'I have no fear, I have no fear'.  This is about attaining the secret skills that we don't learn in school, that someone like Jonathan Levi and his SuperLearner course can teach you.   Jonathan Levi coined: The intellectual Pigmalian Effect- how others can influence someone's ability.  If they believe you are highly intelligent and can get the work done, then you most likely will.  The Intellectual Golem Effect - The same effect if they believe you cannot do the job, you won't. Phrases like: I'm such a clutz I'm so bad at math I never remember names So the question is: how do people break this pattern, what are the steps to becoming a SuperLearner?     SuperLearner Years ago if you wanted to become an Entrepreneur it was hard.  The information wasn't readily accessible.  You had to go to the bookstore and hope that someone had written a book on the subject you wanted to learn and you had to trust that they knew what they were talking about.   Today, information is at our fingertips.  So much information in fact that if you have the skills that Jonathan Levi teaches, you can become a SuperLearner, a memory expert and super human in no time.  In this episode, all is revealed.  Are these skills important to becoming an entrepreneur? you bet they are!     Memory Expert What does a memory expert look like?  What is it that you want to accomplish?  When you go to a dinner party do you want to remember guests names? what do they do for a living? become friends with them?  Jonathan Levi has a system, a course that he is willing to share with our readers.  It can be found at www.JLE.VI/5   Jonathan Levi was kind enough to give us this free gift.  It is a treasure that you should all take advantage of, really.  5 days can change the course of your entrepreneurial life!   Jonathan Levi shared one of his favourite quotes with us, from Robert Hyman about specialization: 'A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, con a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, co-operate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly - Specialization is for insects!'     Super Human What does being a Super Human mean to you?  It means something different to all of us.  What's important in your life? How important is our self-belief patterns, how we see ourselves? Is there a cost?

EP 051: Mike Cobb – International Real Estate Guru Breaks Down Investments In Belize And Nicaragua
International Real Estate Guru Breaks Down Investments In Belize And Nicaragua. Mike Cobb is the Co-Founder of ECI Development, that does International Real Estate Developments in Central America and the Caribbean with a lot of the focus these days being investments in Belize and investment in Nicaragua. Mike and his family lived as Expats in Managua, Nicaragua for 14 years before returning to the States.  They went there for business and stayed there by choice.   International Real Estate Mike Cobb is extremely passionate about what opportunities the country has for Expat Entrepreneurs and International Real Estate!  Have you ever wondered how someone from the USA could end up living and working in Central America?  What would the draw be and why would you stay?  This is the episode to listen to if Central America is where you've contemplated investing, retiring or a little of both.   When Mike Cobb starting building communities in Central America, they believed that their market would be for investors to buy and to rent out as vacation homes.  This was true until the baby boomers decided they could have it both ways.  They could buy International Real Estate, rent out 6 months of the year and pay down their mortgage.   Then as 'snow birds' spend the winter months in a fabulous community in a country that offers a high standard of living with a low cost of living.   Time Machine & Path of Progress Mikk Cobb, what does that mean?  Time Machine & Path of Progress?  If you could go back 20 years and see how the path of progress was, you'd be rich.  I'm sure many of you have dreamt about the 'what if's' If I only knew what the economy would be like.  You still have time with an investment in Belize or an investment in Nicaragua.   Investment in Belize Let's talk about investments in Belize and the time machine & path of Progress.  In Belize, you're likely going back in time about 5-10 years.  If you're talking about Nicaragua, it's more like 20 years.  It truly is the best time to make an investment in Belize.   Are you interested in an investment in Belize?  Mike Cobb discusses what is available, what life is like in Belize and what you can expect from your investment in Belize.   Are you an early baby boomer? Do you find yourself wondering if you've saved enough money to have the life you're accustomed to in the US or Canada?  If not, again, this is the episode that is so important to give a listen to.   Offshore Banking in Belize Are you an American or Canadian entrepreneur?  with a viable business and paying high taxes? Let's talk about offshore banking in Belize.   Life in Belize is warm and sunny most of the year. Crime is low, medical care is fantastic, in fact, they welcome medical tourism.  Therefore, the real question is 'why would you stay in your home country when you can set up offshore banking in Belize and pay next to nothing in taxes and have a lower cost of living and a higher quality of life'.  I know that sounds like a paradox, but it's true.   DISCOVER HOW YOU CAN LEGALLY ELIMINATE YOUR TAX BILL THIS WEEK - ASK FOR A COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION HERE   Investment in Nicaragua Talking about an investment in Nicaragua, Mike Cobb and his partner have been at this a long time and have built their company ECI from the ground up.  They know what they are talking about and are an integral part of helping to develop a country so that Americans & Canadians have a resource to follow through on.   For those of you who are interested in an investment in Nicaragua, an investment in Belize or Offshore Banking in Belize, don't miss this episode with Mike Cobb & Mikkel Thorup.   Mike Cobb & Mikkel Thorup reminisce about what life is like living in Nicaragua with a full-time maid for $200 - $300 a month, having a coffee sack full of organic vegetables & fruits delivered to your front door every week for $8 and going to the movies for $2.

EP 049: Gregor Gregersen – Electric Vehicle Metals Held In Singaporean Vault – Next Big Commodity To Boom 
Electric Vehicle Metals Held In Singaporean Vault - Next Big Commodity To Boom. Gregor Gregersen is the CEO and founder of Silver Bullion Pte Ltd. A gold bullion and silver bullion Singapore dealer as well as The Safe House. A Singaporean Vault company for many types of precious metals; including electric vehicle metals.   Gregor Gregersen has lived as an Expat for nearly 38 years, and he actually gave up his German passport to become a Singaporean citizen. In this interview, we talk about why Gregor chose this country to build his vault for gold bullion and silver bullion Singapore and how this led to electric vehicle metals.   What are "Electric Vehicle Metals"? The Electric Vehicle Metals I am referring to are the metals that go into the batteries that power electric cars. These are precious metals and bullion of high grade.  They are used in the manufacturing process and compose the bulk of the batteries themselves.   Why Should we care about Electric Vehicle Metals and Batteries? Electric vehicle batteries are becoming too cheap to ignore. In the past 4 years, production costs for EV batteries have fallen by over 70%, thanks to investments from major automakers. Elon Musk thinks that these costs will fall a further 20% by 2020. That would make these batteries cheaper to produce than internal combustion engines.   Special Report on Electric Vehicle Metals After recording the interview with Gregor Gregorson I got massively interested in the topic of electric vehicle metals as an investment.   I took everything I learned from Gregor plus a couple hundred hours of research and I compiled it down into a special report. In this special report, I break down why electric vehicle metals is a space you should really be paying attention to, what the opportunities are, what the pitfalls are and most importantly how you can get involved. I think you will see that the world is changing, fortunes are being made and by the time you hear about it on mainstream media it will be too late and you will have missed your chance.   In my daily life, I travel the world searching for unique opportunities, I put an intense amount of due diligence in my research and when I find something really extraordinary I share it with my subscribers.   This is one of those times...   I was thinking about charging for this special report on electric vehicle metals…. Maybe $97 or $197 or maybe it will be part of a paid subscription newsletter I am working on, I have not decided yet...   In the meantime I don't want to delay, this is timely information and I want to get this special report into your hands as fast as possible… therefore I will let you have a copy of it for free for being a loyal listener of this podcast.   If you really want to dig into electric vehicle metals as an investment; to learn about the opportunities, how to protect your investment and what the exact steps are to get started in the most profitable way possible you can download your copy of the report for free by clicking HERE.   What Does Gregor Gregersen Store in his Singaporean Vault Silver Bullion Singapore holds all types of precious metals including gold bullion, silver bullion, platinum bullion. They buy, sell and test all types of bullion. And of course, as we talk about in this interview electric vehicle metals.   Conversations on Commodities With Gregor Gregersen I find conversations on commodities like electric vehicle metals really fascinating. I have been speculating on things like this for nearly 10 years now. Sufficed to say a lot of work goes into understanding this.   In the coming months, I will be writing more on investment topics like this. I am working on a paid newsletter where every month you will receive a special report detailing timely opportunities that I uncover in my journey around the world.   In it, I will break down everything you need to know to make smart investments with d...

EP 048: Rico Ngoma – How To Source Products In China For Drop Shipping and FBA From An Expat Who Actually Lives There
How To Source Products In China For Drop Shipping and FBA From An Expat Who Actually Lives There. Rico Ngoma grew up in Canada and at a very young age realized being an expat entrepreneur was in his blood.  After a trip to China and seeing the difficulty with finding how to source products in China for drop shipping and how to do business in China, Rico realized that he could assist other entrepreneurs on how to find a good manufacturer in China.     Rico Ngoma talks to us about his life since 2014 living and working in Guangzhou, China.  With 24 Million people and thousands of factories, most would find it almost impossible to navigate, especially with the language barrier.  China is not like most countries where English is spoken in most parts of the country.  To survive in China, one must learn even the basics of Mandarin just to survive.  Rico found a small expat entrepreneur community in Guangzhou, which has helped him to feel more at home.   Source Find Asia is Rico's company.  He explains to Mikkel how they are problem solvers for those that want to learn: How to do business in China How to source products in China for drop shipping And how to find a good manufacturer in China.       Rico Explains How to do Business in China Rico Ngoma and Mikkel Thorup chat about how to do business in China and the concept that China is a great source for drop shipping, but where do you start?  who do you trust?  These questions and more, from someone that knows how to source products in China for drop shipping.   Rico Ngoma tells us the difference between a Trading Company and a Factory.  Rico recounts some pretty funny stories about when they first started Source Find Asia.  He claims that you must be a detective to really understand how the buying works in China.     How to Find a Good Manufacturer in China Rico Ngoma chats about how to find a good manufacturer in China and how to source products in China for drop shipping and all the pitfalls that can happen if you're not aware of the many different areas that need to be covered when you want to learn how to source products in China for drop shipping.     Rico Ngoma's company: Source Find Asia Manufacturing Consultants Introduction to Factories Interpreting the language Peace of Mind for Clients and more!!   If becoming an expat entrepreneur is in your blood, or you want to learn how to do business in China, or how to source products in China for drop shipping listen to Ep 029: Jim Cockrum - where Jim talks about how his company does $25 Million in Sales on Amazon.     How to Reach Rico Ngoma www.SourceFindAsia.com Made in China Podcast rico@sourcefindasia.com     FINAL THOUGHTS Super interesting episode with Rico Ngoma.

EP 047: Jeff Haden – The First Rule Of Ghostwriting Is: You Do Not Talk About Ghostwriting…
The First Rule Of Ghostwriting Is: You Do Not Talk About Ghostwriting... Jeff Haden author of The Motivation Myth spent over 20 years in manufacturing when he realized he really didn't love what he was doing.  Over the next few years, he learned different skills to create a job for himself in the ghostwriting arena.  Some may ask? What is ghostwriting? Why do people hire a ghostwriter? and where do you find a ghostwriter?   What is Ghostwriting? Ghostwriting is when someone is hired to write literary or journalistic works, speeches, or other texts that are officially credited to another person as the author.  Celebrities, executives, and political leaders often hire ghostwriters to draft or edit their autobiographies, memoirs, or a book they have an idea for.   Why Do People Hire A Ghostwriter? In this interview with Jeff Haden, he explains it this way:  You get an offer to write a weekly column on a certain subject, but you either don't have the time nor the talent, so you hire someone to write for you, and they sign your name to the work.  Often someone is in a field with expertise that everyone wants to hear about.  The problem is that you are a terrible writer, but a fantastic expert.  You hire a ghostwriter to clean up and polish your idea.   Where Do You Find A Ghostwriter? Jeff Haden and Mikkel Thorup talk opening about where do you find a ghostwriter?  It's actually quite simple.  Use sites like UpWork, Freelancer and BloggingPro, to name just a few. One of the key takeaways from Jeff Haden was to hire someone that has written before, been paid for it, and does it daily.  Jeff has written 70 books as a ghostwriter...I'd say...hire Jeff Haden if you want a book that is professionally written.   The Motivation Myth Jeff Haden's book, The Motivation Myth, overturns the beloved (but false) idea that motivation leads to success, instead, small successes lead to constant motivation - and let you achieve your biggest goals while also having more fun. In short, motivation isn’t something you get — motivation is something you create. Listen as Jeff and Mikkel go through several concepts in the book, The Motivation Myth. Jeff breaks down some of his controversial ideas and helps us to understand that what's been drilled into us since we first started in the workforce are actually false.   What is a Serial Achiever Jeff Haden and Mikkel Thorup talk about how we CAN do more than 1 thing in life, and that we LOVE doing more than 1 thing.  We spend our early adulthood pursuing a career that we believe we will stay at for the rest of our lives. After 15 years we decide to move on to something different.  We go back to school, we learn everything that is required and then we pursue that career.  That may happen several times in our life, and that's perfectly fine.  In fact, in this Interview with Jeff Haden, he encourages people to add the word 'AND' to your elevator pitch. You don't have to be just one thing;  you can be several;  like a photographer AND a writer. That's part of life that gives us character and depth.   Check out this podcast to hear about: What's the difference between a Coach and a Pro How to write a book in 1.5 weeks Learning to persevere and work hard is a SKILL!

If you've ever considered how to start a vacation rental business, then this is the episode for you.   How to Start a Vacation Rental Business We have all heard about Airbnb and how it has revolutionized the lodging and accommodation world of travel, and you probably know someone that puts their home on this site when they are away on vacation to maybe recoup some of their expenses while they are away. However, have you ever considered renting properties and then turning around and advertising on Airbnb?  Did you know that you don't have to own the property?  As long as the landlord is aware of what your plan looks like, there is no reason for them to say no.  This and many other ideas are discussed in this fun episode on how to start a vacation rental business. As mentioned, Airbnb has changed the face of short-term rentals forever.  How did they get so big? so quickly? and you must be asking yourself, what kind of software do they use and can I use it too?  Listen in as James Guzman explains the software they use for efficiency and speed.   Starting a Business in Mexico as an Expat and How to Start an Airbnb in Mexico We also talk about the demographics of his short-term rentals and how to start an Airbnb in Mexico.  Because James Guzman lives in Mexico, of course, it is much simpler, as he can keep an eye on his business, but you can start an Airbnb anywhere.  The concepts are the same all across the globe.  Here are a few ideas discussed: Platforms and Software Access to the property/keys How to earn more income from your properties What to do during slow seasons What does a 'Full Vacation' look like Challenges of owning your own business   What To Consider When you Start a Vacation Rental Business Is your city safe? Clean? What about the culture? the food? Why do people come to your city? What kind of return can I expect? Vacancy rates? All this and more is discussed!   James Guzman on Education Most of our listeners are aware of our passion here on the Expat Money Show regarding the current state of the education system in North America and the trend towards homeschooling and world schooling.  James Guzman and Mikkel Thorup discuss this hot topic.  Many of our past guests discuss this same topic, listen in to Ep 37: Zak Slayback or to Ep 43: Sam McRoberts who currently owns and operates his business as an expat and world schools his son.   We all know how much Mikkel loves to talk about travel and the experiences learned from each country.  Today's episode was no different.  Mikkel and James Guzman chat in detail about Medellin & the country of Colombia.  Mikkel spent quite a bit of time there when he first started his travels and speaks kindly about the people, the food and the culture.  James Guzman would agree!   Best Way to Reach James Guzman www.borderlessblog.com   Final Thoughts I really didn't know much about Airbnb myself, so I learned a great deal from James Guzman.  It really is a great business model for those interested in learning how to start a vacation rental business.  James has some great insights and totally worth listening in.   I hope you get as much value from this interview with James Guzman as I did… and if you would like to stay up to date with all new content that comes out at The Expat Money Show make sure you sign up for our Newsletter below.

EP 043: Sam McRoberts – Discover How To Internationalize Your Life So You Can Protect Your Wealth And Protect Your Family
Discover How To Internationalize Your Life So You Can Protect Your Wealth And Protect Your Family Sam McRoberts, with family in tow, left behind his home country of USA to travel the world and unschool his 7-year-old son.   We talk in depth about how to internationalize your life,  how to protect your wealth and most importantly, how to protect your family.   About Sam McRoberts Sam McRoberts is the successful CEO of VUDU Marketing, where he consults with medium to large size companies and influencers on SEO.  They audit websites, figuring out what's right and wrong, what needs to be fixed to increase organic traffic and helping people put together strategies so they know what to do to dominate their space. As Sam McRoberts and his family travel the world, the most important thing he requires is a good internet connection, and from there, he can run his company.  VUDU Marketing is his bread & butter, but that's not the only company Sam operates. Sam realized in the beginning; when he was trying to learn SEO; that no one taught it, so that became his mission, to teach other people how to get the job done easily.  Sam walks us through what that looks like and how SEO works. Screw the Zoo, Sam McRoberts book is another way he has helped to monetize his adventurous travel.  Listen as everything is woven together to make life as an expat easier and for more fun!   How To Internationalize Your Life We then delve into how to internationalize your life.  Besides education, how to internationalize your life is the biggest topic we discuss here on our podcast.  More and more people are compelled to learn how this is done, and how easy it can be if you follow some simple rules and talk to people that know what needs to be done before you leave your home country. We've realized that to pay big corporate taxes is just not necessary anymore.   If you are traveling the world, why do you have to pay for the roads to be fixed and for schools in a neighbourhood that you no longer live in?   How To Protect Your Wealth Once you've learned how to internationalize your life, it's time to learn how to protect your wealth.  You're making big bucks so you need to protect your wealth.  We chat quite a bit about this topic, because if you live in the USA or Canada, the taxes are outrageous and what's left can be a lot less than if you know how to internationalize your life and then protect your family.   How To Protect Your Family Sam McRoberts and Mikkel Thorup both love their family.  Family first!  Do you know how to protect your family?  Are you interested in learning how to protect your family, and how to internationalize your life, then this episode is a must listen to.   What is Unschooling Have you been wondering what is unschooling?  Sam McRoberts gives his definition of homeschooling compared to unschooling and it's right on the money.  Mikkel and Sam spend at least 1/3 of the episode delving into education, what's wrong with our current system and answering the question, what is unschooling? In Ep 029: Jim Cockrum talks about what is unschooling and how happy his children are because they chose this type of education.   What Else Will You Learn From This Episode What is the Schengen Area and why is it important to understand Why travelling the world is so important for our survival Flag Theory and what is Sam attempting to implement in his life Why Flag Theory is not reserved for the ultra-wealthy or even the wealthy   2nd Passport Another of Mikkel's favourite topics, obtaining a 2nd Passport.  A number of guests on The Expat Money Show have discussed 2nd passports.  Listen to Ep 036: Jim Rogers as they discuss living and working in Singapore.   How to Reach Sam McRoberts www.mySEOcourse.com  (Listen in to learn how and why Sam created this SEO course) twitter: @Sams_Antics ‏ www.SamMcRoberts.com   Final Thoughts Flag Theory, SEO, Family, and Unschooling.

EP 037: Zak Slayback – Learn From A Career Expert How To Land Your Dream Job By Writing Perfect Emails And Utilizing Your Attractive Character!
Learn from a Career Expert How To Land Your Dream Job by Writing Perfect Emails and Utilizing your Attractive Character! In this Interview with Zak Slayback, we talk about how important being coachable is and that it's not so much about what he can add to your business structure, rather what he can take away so that you land your dream job while teaching you the proper skills of writing the perfect email and how to create your attractive character.   Zak Slayback was the perfect student.  He got great grades, got into an Ivy League College but didn't know what he wanted to do.  Do you find yourself here too?  Maybe you're in University or College, maybe you never went and are out working somewhere that you hate and don't really know how to get out of that rut.   Writing Proper Emails   Listen in to this episode as Zak Slayback takes us through the many steps that are required to find the job that you want and how to write proper emails so that the correct person will take the time to read your resume.   Have you ever sat down and tried to write the perfect email? and when you thought you had it nailed, you sent it out and no one replied?  Zak lets us in on some secrets of making sure your email gets to the right person and they get read.  If you can conquer these two items, your chances of getting hired go way up!     Zak Slayback on Creating Your Dream Job   Career Expert   What does a Career Expert do you might ask.  Zak Slayback really goes into detail on who he feels is qualified to work with him.  Not everyone is a good fit, and there are so many people out in the field of self-development and working with young entrepreneurs that you really have to find that perfect fit.  Zak tells me that he doesn't do LIFE COACH STUFF!  AT the end of the day Zak is a communicator, sales, and career expert.   Listen in as Zak & Mikkel discuss   The Trust Factor Attractive Character Call to Action (CTA) An Incentive Map The Big 5 Copywriting voices (which one are you?)   Zak Slayback on Education   37 episodes of The Expat Money Show and time and time again we talk about education.  Without realizing it, almost 1/2 of our guests have some form of opinion on what has happened in the world regarding education.  In Ep 004: Clara Day Herrera talks about her daughter and the education system in the Philippines.  Zak Slayback talks about the USA and here is a direct quote:   'School should have taught you how to succeed at work and build a great career.  Instead, it taught you that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.  Thankfully, I teach what school never taught'   I love it because it's true.  If you listened to Ep 034: Michelle Dale she'll tell you the same thing.  Life is about doing, getting out there and learning the skills required to be a professional.  Attending College or University doesn't always give you the skills to make sure you know what you're doing once you've received that diploma.  Zak Slayback realized this a long time ago and has built a system to help those that are stuck in a job they hate.   Short Cuts to Success   Have you ever wondered if there really is such a thing as a shortcut to success?  People talk about it, but does it really exist? Yes, Virginia, it does exist! Zak goes into detail about the methods he uses,  you can shortcut success ethically and morally!   We've had many wonderful guests on our show that let you in on the secrets of success.  Like in  Ep 020: Mindy Stern - What learning from the best coaches can do for you, today we have Zak Slayback on helping ambitious people get ahead in their careers.   Zak Slayback's New Book   'How to Get Ahead' will be out early next year.  If you've ever written your own book, you know how much hard work and effort is necessary to build a really successful, worth reading book.  I believe that Zak has the tenacity and fortitude to create such a product.

EP 036: Jim Rogers – Legendary Investor Shares His Opinions On North Korea, China, Mandarin And The Current State Of Education
Legendary Investor Shares His Opinions on North Korea, China, Mandarin and the Current State of Education. In this Interview with Jim Rogers, I get updated opinions on everything from North Korea and China to the Mandarin language and the current state of education around the world. Jim Rogers tells me what he is teaching his own children and where he as an investor is putting his own money today.   Jim Rogers is a world-renowned investor, famously known for his co-founding of the Quantum Fund.  He has frequently appeared on CNBC, Fox Business and Bloomberg. He is a multiple best selling author and has multiple Guinness world records for his around the world trips visiting nearly every country on the planet. (listen in to hear which countries he has yet to visit!)   Jim Rogers Talks about his Current thoughts on Education On this episode of The Expat Money Show,  Jim Rogers and Mikkel Thorup talk in depth about education, specifically about their children and what kind of education they believe will propel them forward in this new and most difficult time. Jim writes in one of his earlier books why moving to China or another Asian country is such a vital move for parents.  If you really want to give your children an unfair advantage, the education system in Singapore or China is rigorous and difficult, unlike schools in the USA.   As with many of the guests, education is such an important topic. To hear from another multimillionaire entrepreneur on education listen to this fantastic interview with Jim Cockrum.   Jim Rogers spent most of his adult life not wanting children. He believed children were a horrible waste of time, energy, money and everything else, feeling sorry for people who had children, so he was not ever going to do it. Jim now believes everyone should have children and that he was just wrong for not having them earlier in his life.   In 2002, arriving back home in NYC after completing his third Guinness World Record being on the road for 3 years, covering more than 245,000 kilometres in a one-of-a-kind Mercedes-Benz taking them to six continents and 116 countries, they decided to have children.   Jim Rogers claims this was the best decision of his life. His two girls are now the center of his universe, in fact,  his 2009: A Gift to My Children book was written for his daughters. Listen in to hear about why he wrote this most special gift to his children.  This may spark some creativity in yourself for your children to follow!   Jim Rogers Opinion on Mandarin Mikkel and Jim discuss in lengths about what they believe the most important languages their children should speak. Due to the fact that Jim and his family live in Singapore, his two daughters are fluent in Mandarin and have actually won awards for the best Mandarin Speakers in the Nation.  Jim believes that this is the second most important language to learn, behind English.   In Ep: 025 Mikkel shares his own opinions about China and Mandarin and what he is doing in his own life to prepare.   Jim Rogers Books 1994:  Investment Biker: Around the World with Jim Rogers 2003: Adventure Capitalist: The Ultimate Road Trip 2004: Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably in the World's Greatest Market 2009: A Gift to My Children: A Father's Lessons For Life and Investing 2013: Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets   Jim Rogers talks about the possibility of a new book Is there a new book on the horizon?  What would the topic be?  Jim promised Mikkel that the next time he was in Singapore to bring his copies of his book (He has all of them!) and he would be happy to sign them!  I’m pretty confident that Mikkel will hold him to his word!! Jim's wife Paige has written her own book called 'Don't Call Me Mrs. Rogers' which will be due out in September.  Maybe when Mikkel visits Singapore Paige will autograph her book and the girls can autograph in Chinese!

EP 035: Ben Hammersley – Is Your Life And Business Ready For Artificial Intelligence And The Radical Changes That will happen In The Next 3-5 Years?
Is your life and business ready for Artificial Intelligence and the radical changes that will happen in the next 3-5 years?  Ben Hammersley is a futurist, but that's not how he started his career some 20 years ago.  Similar to so many of us, his career path has evolved into something he absolutely loves as he helps companies and individuals create a more productive and effective workspace.   Let's start with the obvious..what is a Futurist?  and why is it so important in our daily lives and in our businesses?   FUTURIST 'a person who studies the future and makes predictions about it based on current trends'   Today on the Expat Money Show Ben Hammersley and Mikkel Thorup discuss what a futurist might do for Big Corporate America who thinks they're ready to implement artificial intelligence and how you yourself can change your life radically using concepts that Ben will teach you.   Ben describes what most companies want for the future.  They see their business as moving forward and being innovative and being companies of the future.  But in reality, they are still using fax machines, their staff don't know how to use the systems that are currently in place properly, and in most cases, the systems they do have in place are old and antiquated.  So wanting to move into the future really takes going back into the past and moving them into the present.  If you work for a company that this sounds familiar, or you own a company and see yourself here, then this is the episode for you.   FUTURISM Futurism is a fascinating topic and I believe that most of you will really love this episode.   When it's time to implement changes in your life.  Ask yourself these two questions first: What problem am I solving by doing this action (the why?) If I was to be solving this problem today, but I was doing it for the 1st time and I was using modern tools how would I do it?   Imagine that you change 2-3 things a month in your life.  That's 36 things a year!  WOW!  Year after year, implementing new strategies that help to bring you up today and into the future.   Ben is hired by large companies and governments to talk about using AI and to bring them into the future. After he stops rolling his eyes, he tells them they can't use AI, you can't even use 'Outlook' properly!   ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Mikkel get's Ben to reveal what are the biggest companies that have welcomed AI and innovating in a way that will take them into the future seamlessly.  I'm sure none of you will be surprised! And who are the companies that have refused to move forward?  Again, no surprises!   IN A NUTSHELL    What an interesting chat Ben and I had.  I thought for sure we were going to talk about artificial intelligence and the big monolithic theory, when in fact we talked about the micro changes that can be made in our everyday lives and in our business.   BEN'S WORDS TO LIVE BY:     Pay attention to what's happening day to day and be responsible for your life!   HOW CAN WE REACH BEN HAMMERSLEY: www.benhammersley.com Twitter @BenHammersley Ben@BenHammersley.com   WHAT BEN WANTS YOU TO KNOW ABOUT HIMSELF!   I'm 6'6 with a handlebar mustache and full of tattoos.  So if you see someone that's 6'6 with a handlebar mustache full of tattoos, it's likely me so come up and say hi!   FINAL THOUGHTS   Every week on The Expat Money Show I aim to bring in the best Entrepreneurs from around the globe who are doing some really incredible things. Ben is such an amazing guy, his lifes work is rewarding and comprehensive and in this interview, he really teaches us how if we take, watch and improve just 2 or 3 daily routines in our life a week, that's 36 unique changes we can make in our lives in one year.  Imagine over 5 years and what an impact this will have on our efficiency!   I hope you get as much value from this Podcast Episode as I did… and if you would like to stay up to da...

And specifically why mindset is the key to all success!     GOING IT ALONE! Listen in to hear what Michelle Dale does with clients to get them ready for their online success.  She understands that it can't be done alone, and why would you want to do it alone?   This theme seems to come up time and time again.  Don't go it alone.  Get help from the professionals that do the job you don't want to do, like Facebook ads, YouTube, SEO, Marketing, whatever that job is there is someone out there that usually does it better than you.   Maybe you are wondering where on earth would I find support staff that is knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy, and willing to work for me for a decent wage?  Look no further!  Michelle lets us in on the secrets of hiring a top-notch freelancer!   BUSINESS MODEL The virtual assistants business model is brilliant. If you are tired of trying to create an online digital marketing company, or are tired of living in your country of birth and want that amazing life as an expat entrepreneur, don't miss this episode.   WHAT LIFE IS LIKE BEING AN EXPAT ENTREPRENEUR Mikkel Thorup and Michelle Dale talk about being expat entrepreneurs and how similar their paths have been and how they got to be where there are today using the skills they have learned along the way.  They both credit their success to being creative and thinking outside the box, and how they chose not to follow the conventional rules of education.   Michelle is a native Brit but left when she was 24 to pursue her dream of travelling the globe.  We talk in depth about what it took for her to leave her home in the UK, to pack her bags and make that crucial decision to not buy a return ticket home, to make her crazy idea of living and working outside her country of birth a reality.   INSPIRATIONAL STORIES Michelle tells us stories of her families travels, the places they have lived and worked and the excitement.  When her family decides it's time to move and start a new chapter in their lives, one filled with excitement and passion, people ask her how her children feel about selling everything they own other than a few suitcases of their personal effects and set out for the unknown.   Most of you would be surprised to hear that it is her children, all 3 of them, that get the urge to leave their home and travel and make a new home for themselves somewhere new.  They love the travel, the food, the culture just as much as Michelle and her husband do!   That was so inspiring to hear.  We always worry about how our children will be affected by the changes we make in our lives, but time and time again we hear the same stories, about how resilient our children are, and how they love the adventure and learning about a new country.  They love learning by being immersed in the culture and they are happy and well adjusted.   Michelle talks about her love of Egypt. The people, the culture, the smells...and as her and her family travel the world,

EP 031: James Ellsmoor – How You Can Make A Difference In Small Island Nations With Renewable Energy And Sustainable Innovation
How You Can Make A Difference In Small Island Nations With Renewable Energy And Sustainable Innovation.   Today’s guest on The Expat Money Show is James Ellsmoor. James is a Social Entrepreneur with expertise in renewable energy, sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship in rural, remote and island regions.  He has experience living, working and travelling in over 40 countries.   James lives a fascinating life helping Small Islands Developing States (SIDS). There are about 50 different jurisdictions around the globe.  James has found that entrepreneurship in these countries is strong and it’s what drives these small nations. Take a look at Jamaica and the impact this small country has had on North America.  Their music, their food, their athletes. As a Canadian, and we love our Reggae music, our curry goat and Jamaican patties and Red Stripe beer!     What’s really impressive is that James is a Forbes 30 under 30 winner and top 100 most powerful young entrepreneurs under 25.  This guy is smart and creative. And for an entrepreneur that’s the winning ticket!!   As most of you know, I love to travel.  I love to experience what the locals experience and chatting with James really got me interested in so many places that I have never had the pleasure of visiting, and now are on my list of countries to see .  My reasons are very different than most, and James agrees, what he finds fascinating is also different.   We dove deep into what renewable energy looks like.  Is it the same for each area? Does Jamaica require the same as Samoa? Or Guyana?  What do countries like this require to be self-sufficient, with their government, the infrastructure and food crops?   SOLAR HEAD OF STATE James and his company, Solar Head of State, tried to put solar panels on the White House, which is how his company name came to be.  James and his team work with countries to reduce their carbon footprint, teach them about renewable energy and sustainable energy.  I’m just really happy that someone is working with these smaller nations. Their electricity costs are extremely high and their incomes are extremely low so let’s work on bringing them closer together.   HOW DOES RENEWABLE ENERGY IMPACT AGRICULTURE? I truly believe that we all need to understand the impact of using renewable energy can make on the countries we visit. So many of these small nations Import 90% of their food because it’s cheaper to buy chickens from China than to grow them locally.  So, in the end, these countries rely heavily on canned food even tho it’s a tropical paradise.   It’s why 9 out of 10 countries that have an issue with obesity are Pacific island countries. Using renewable energy to power the machinery and the agricultural equipment is a step in the right direction to allowing these nations to not be as reliant on food imported from abroad.   WHAT HAPPENS TO A SMALL NATION AFTER A NATURAL DISASTER Our conversation about Puerto Rico was fascinating.  After the hurricane in 2017, the island was devastated and literally had to shut down.  I know they rely heavily on tourism, with dozens of cruise ships docking every day, and the US came to the rescue.     Millions of dollars were spent to get the country back up and running. Interestingly, they had to rebuild new electricity grids and they started to use sustainable energy and renewable energy, and how smart is that.  If we, North Americans, had to rebuild our grids, we just wouldn’t build them the same way, we would use far more renewable energy.   James and I talk about how people are leaving, 500,000 of them since the hurricane to live in Florida, which has left a huge gap in the real estate market for anyone to walk into, especially if you are an American, and buy property at a reduced rate.   In a Nutshell How important is renewable energy to these small island nations, and for all of us for that matter What are smart grids?

EP 030: Greg Rollett – Video Marketing! The New Age Of Video Marketing Is Easier Than You Ever Imagined!  Find Out How Video Can Change Your Business Forever!
Video Marketing! The New Age Of Video Marketing Is Easier Than You Ever Imagined!  Find Out How Video Can Change Your Business Forever!     Today’s guest on The Expat Money Show is Greg Rollett.  Greg is a fast-talking, energized, crazy video marketing genius, who is an Emmy Award Winning Producer, Best Selling Author and Marketing Expert who works with the likes of Brian Tracy, Michael Gerber and Coca-Cola.   Who better to learn about Video Marketing than from an expert TV producer that has created ‘Ambitious Life’ a weekly show on air for 98 consecutive weeks, and ‘Ambitious Adventures’ which was just picked up by ‘Entrepreneur and Amazon Prime’, very impressive!   Maybe you’re wondering if video marketing is for you and your company, I wondered the same.  After my hour with Greg, I better understood how and why videos work and most importantly, how to repurpose my videos.  And why it’s just not good enough to produce ONE video and leave it at that.   HOW DO I CREATE A VIDEO?   Greg and I talk about the iPhone and is it good enough to use to make a 5 or 6-minute video.  He tells us ‘It’s fine, just get started’ When you have a little experience and some confidence add a couple of hundred dollars to amplify your iPhone so that the lighting is great, (no shadows), the sound is crisp and clear, (no humming) and the picture is clear!  One of the other tips from Greg was to use a 2nd camera, for many reasons like editing. It just works better!   But here’s the truth, it doesn’t HAVE to be video, but if you have taken a great video there are so many ways you can use that video and repurpose the content.   3 OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TIPS FOR VIDEO MARKETING   Start with  a 5-6 minute Video Be consistent - don’t do 1 video and leave it at that.  If you want success, true success keeps the content coming every week.  And don’t over commit. If you’re just starting out, don’t say you’re going to create a video every day, you’ll get burnt out.   Solve your clients' problem (pain point)   NOW WHAT DO I DO?   HOW TO REPURPOSE YOUR VIDEO MARKETING   Greg really delves in deep with every way you can repurpose the content, and it’s crazy!  Ways I never even thought about. He starts with a 5-6 minute video, and here are just a few tips from Greg how to repurpose that video:     Break down the video into bite-size snackable pieces Use it for YouTube, FB, Twitter (listen carefully how this is done) Strip it down and use as a podcast Have it transcribed so you can use it ... As a blog,(or many blogs)   Broken down as a guest blog Use  little snippets and have quotes designed (Greg talks about how he does this) And more…..so much more!   What was really cool about having a video marketing expert on The Expat Money Show, was that everything Greg talked about I could use to grow my business.  I gotta tell you, my guests here on the podcast are brought here for me, as much as they are for you, my listeners.  I know that to grow my business, to create likeability, for you to trust me, all of Greg’s tips are super important. I’m pretty sure for most of my listeners, you will be stopping and starting this episode because it has heaps of value for those just starting out in business to those with years of experience.     Greg and I chat about not stopping just because you only got 30 views on YouTube with your video.  Take a look at all of the other platforms. Where did you rock it? What kind of content can you pull out and use better for that platform?  Greg shares what his best platform is and how he has super-sized it to make a killing!   When you’re listening, take note on what’s new in the world of video marketing.  What new platform can you use to take your business to the next level? Greg uses this line, which I totally love ‘Don’t be just any old Monkey’ (Find out who originally coined that phrase lol)

How Creating Engaging Content On Social Media Is Translating into 25 Million In Sales On Amazon. Today’s guest on The Expat Money Show is Jim Cockrum. Jim was ranked among the most trusted Internet Marketers in the world, his best selling book “The Silent Sales Machine” has been read by an estimated 800,000 people around the globe. Jim is a constant top 10 seller on Amazon, and along with his two closest partners (Nathan Bailey & Brett Bartlett), run a combined $25 million annual sales empire. You can join Jim's Facebook group of 48,000 members, where they are always creating engaging content not just about Amazon selling but about internet marketing as a whole.   When I heard Jim was going to be on our show I was ecstatic! Jim is such a well-known influencer in the world of Internet Marketing and has such a reputation for creating engaging content I knew our audience would go crazy to hear him.   What I found fascinating was that you would think a guy making heaps of money, having over 150 staff, and being in the business for almost 2 decades would have a pretty high opinion of himself, but nothing could be farther from the truth.  I’ve got to say that Jim Cockrum has to be one of the nicest, most down to earth guy I’ve ever met.   How creating engaging content on Facebook is driving his Amazon business Jim and I dig deep into what it takes to dominate the market with Amazon.  We discuss his tactics with Facebook and how their teams' creativity is unparalleled and how they are selling millions of dollars worth of Toys!  We talk about how creating engaging content with something as simple as your mobile phone is beating out the monster brands like Mateel in the toys department. And how they have been able to get tens of millions of organic views of their products on Facebook.   In a Nutshell Learn what three concepts are needed to totally rock as a human being Take away solutions for life Top books as suggested reading What Jim looks for when hiring a new employee How important is getting your MBA? (his answer for this is hilarious) What does a CEO of over 150 employees and $25 Million a year do? How DO you create an 8 figure product line on Amazon?   Hot Topics for 2018 As a lot of our interviews go on The Expat Money Show, we start our conversation talking about family, schooling, and education. For those of you that know me well I am opposed to traditional education. I believe there is a better way to learn. Interestingly enough many of my guests have the same beliefs and even some, like Jim Cockrum, have opted to homeschool his children (all 5 of them).   Why Traditional Education is Failing Jim and I discuss why it is so vitally important for the future of our children to not rely on others to teach them.  That we just can’t sit back and expect the current social schooling system to teach our children the fundamentals for being a successful human being.   That we need to show our children, day in and day out how to be the best. How to accomplish their goals, and not to have the expectation that they will be able to read a book and then understand it. That we need to be interactive with our children.   Jim shares how is 8-year-old son would never ‘expect’ his mom and dad to just pay for something.  He reaches inside and figures out a way that he can create a business that will ultimately fund his desires!  Wow! If that isn’t motivation for becoming an entrepreneur I don’t know what is.   Life Learning Just Never Stops What we learn from Jim is how to be a remarkable parent and how to be the best that you can be so that others will follow your lead.  We spend a great deal of time discussing child-rearing tactics and how to lead a fulfilling life.   Over and over again my guests show us that it’s not just about making money, it’s about the balance in your life between family and work.  And how important this balance is to have a truly successful...

EP 028: Nydia Monarrez – Learn What It Takes To Dominate In The Hispanic Market Of 56 Million Americans
Learn what it takes to dominate in the Hispanic market of 56 million Americans. Today’s guest on The Expat Money Show is Nydia Monarrez. She is a top-rated Voice Over Talent, International Speaker, Hispanic Marketer and Business Consultant. Nydia has worked with the likes of McDonald's, Toyota and Walt Disney. She is focused on helping you to get your business ready to dominate in the Hispanic market.   In this episode, we talk in detail about why it is so vitally important to market to the Latinos inside the USA from Mexico, Columbia, Chili and other Latin American Countries.  Nydia Monarrez goes into detail about how you can get your company ready for this booming market.   Early on, Nydia quickly realized that the interpreters that had been hired to translate from English to Spanish for the major companies in the USA were missing out on the most important aspect of the translation, the culture of the Latin American people.  They had never grasped what it meant to be a Latino and couldn’t understand why they couldn’t dominate in the Hispanic market. This is a market that grew roughly 50% from 2010 to 2015 and they lost such a massive opportunity.    Nydia goes deep and really explains what the hot buttons for the Hispanic people are and how you can incorporate these hot buttons into your marketing (these are gold, don't miss these).   WE TALK ABOUT HISPANIC MARKETING SOLUTIONS! As Nydia says, "We came and we’re not leaving."   Born and raised in Mexico, Nydia understands fully what it takes to market to this powerful growing market.  She takes her clientele to the next level of marketing and tapping into the 1.5 Trillion $$ buying power. You heard me, 1.5 Trillion USD buying power!!     I ASKED NYDIA ‘HOW DOES A BUSINESS KNOW IF THEY ARE RIGHT FOR THE HISPANIC MARKET? Chiropractors, Doctors, Dentists Information Products/Webinars/Books/Educational Products Physical Stores, Grocery Stores   Are all perfect fits Nydia tells me, It doesn’t matter the type of business you are in.  We shop for everything, and everywhere and we prefer to buy from someone that understands our needs and takes the time to speak to us in our native language.  So to really make a killing for your company you must start paying attention and learn the how’s and why’s to dominate in the Hispanic market.   WHERE YOU CAN FIND NYDIA MONARREZ: Website: https://www.NydiaMonarrez.com/hispanic-market-strategies/ Email: NydiaMonarrez@NydiaMonarrez.com   FINAL THOUGHTS On The Expat Money Show, I aim to bring in the best Entrepreneurs from around the globe who are doing some really incredible things. It was an amazing and exciting experience to chat with Nydia and I found the idea of how to get your business ready to dominate in the Hispanic market fascinating. If you want to have a huge advantage over competitors, this is a great way to do it!   I hope you get as much value from this Podcast Episode as I did… and if you would like to stay up to date with all new content that comes out at The Expat Money Show make sure you sign up for our Newsletter below.

EP 024: Akbar Sheikh – If You Get Your Fundamentals Correct Success Is Automatic
If You Get Your Fundamentals Correct Success Is Automatic. Akbar Sheikh helps Entrepreneurs to ethically scale their businesses to 7-figures immediately.   In this episode of The Expat Money Show, Mikkel Thorup and Akbar Sheikh discuss how getting your fundamentals correct first can make success automatic. Often times people over complicate things and miss the basics like health, wellness, diet, sleep, association, and others that we touch on in this episode. Akbar Sheikh talks about how he went from homeless to a top 1% earner in his industry by focusing on these exact fundamentals.   You can learn more about Akbar Sheikh at https://akbarsheikh.com   Mikkel Thorup & Akbar Sheikh at FHL 2018 in Orlando, FL.   The romantic notion of an entrepreneur working 24 hours a day 7 days a week, never sleeping, and hustle-hustle-grind-grind around the clock is not a sustainable approach. Akbar Sheikh recommends balance and he has some very strong opinions on how to get it. Make sure to listen to the complete episode to learn how these seemingly basic fundamentals can propel you and your business forward.   Akbar Sheikh talks about the 7 ethical principles of persuasion In this interview Akbar Sheikh also shares some of his secrets on how he helps businesses to scale to 7 figures fast, using what he calls the 7 ethical principles of persuasion. He uses these principles to walk into an existing business and "fixes things up". He uses a great analogy of a house and how with the right modifications you too can scale your business to 7 figures.   Final Thoughts on my Conversation with Akbar Sheikh I enjoyed this conversation with Akbar Sheikh immensely and was very fortunate to pry him away from his work while he was in Sydney Australia for a project. Akbar Sheikh is very obviously a sought-after coach and consultant and his time is very valuable, I hope that you take advantage of this interview and write down some killer notes on things you can modify in your own life to make successes automatic for you too.

EP 023: Erik Paquet – How to Unlock an Extra $20,000 Worth of Free Travel Using Frequent Flyer Miles
How to Unlock an Extra $20,000 Worth of Free Travel Using Frequent Flyer Miles. Today's guest on The Expat Money Show is Erik Paquet, the Co-Founder of Abroaders.com and the Co-Host of Abroaders Podcast on iTunes. In this episode, we dig deep not only into the success mindset of an Entrepreneur living around the world but he explains exactly how all us Entrepreneurs can get free unlimited travel around the globe with some small tweaks to how we collect frequent flyer miles and how we use our credit cards. I don't know about you but 3 or 4 extra roundtrip tickets in business class anywhere in the world every year sounds pretty awesome to me! You can reach out to Erik Paquet at Abroaders.com   Free Travel Using Frequent Flyer Miles - The Basics... You are going to get the majority of your points from the bank by using your credit card... not from actually flying The BEST points to collect for free travel using frequent flyer miles are called "Transferable Points" The WORST points to collect for free travel using frequent flyer miles are called "Fixed Rate Points" To get the most value out of your frequent flyer miles make sure you are spending them on flights... and sometimes hotel stays The worst way to use your frequent flyer miles is for online shopping of goods, often the price of say a coffee maker and a one-way business class seat can be the same amount of points even though the dollar amount could be thousands apart...     Free Travel Using Frequent Flyer Miles - More Advanced... Using frequent flyer miles all you need to pay is the airport taxes... typically $50 to $200 a trip The government counts the use of frequent flyer miles as a "rebate" and not as income... so if you were to take $20,000 of free travel during the year it would not bump you to a higher tax bracket Making sure all your Facebook Ads and Google Ads you spend for your business are done through your credit card that is connected to your frequent flyer program Your Ad spend only needs to break even for you to get unlimited travel around the planet When signing up for a new credit card make sure you are getting a signing bonus of 50,000 + points for joining Purchasing a business or first class ticket can be 5 to 10 times the cost using cash, but it is not 5 to 10 times the amount when paying using points. Make sure you check the difference and try upgrading your ticket   I don't want to spoil too much from this episode because you really need to listen to it yourself to understand the whole concept. You will also be able to laugh at how poorly I have used my points in the past LOL.

Today's guest on The Expat Money Show is the Host of Funnel Hacker Radio a Top-Ten Business Podcast and is the Chief Revenue and Business Development Officer at Clickfunnels. Dave Woodward joins us on the Podcast to discuss what is a sales funnel and more importantly... why do you need one today.   Free 14-Day Trial To learn more about Clickfunnels and sales funnels and to get your 14-Day free trial visit: https://ExpatMoneyShow.com/funnels     Same of the big questions Dave Woodward answers for us about what is a sales funnel:   Why do you need a Sales Funnel? How to develop a lead to a buyer as quickly as possible? Why will a regular website not cut it anymore? What are some of the most common mistakes new Entrepreneurs make? What is the number one thing you can do TODAY to fix your website?   In this Episode, we discuss what is a sales funnel but we also talk at length about Clickfunnels, the most powerful funnel software on the planet. I have used this software extensively and loved how easy it was for me to navigate even though I know NOTHING about programming.     I remember a couple of years ago when I started my online Travel Agency and I didn't have access to a product like Clickfunnels I had to hire a programmer to do everything from scratch for my website. Without a lie it cost me over $30,000 USD to build and took more than 4 months... yes it is a beautiful website, but today I would be able to do the same thing in a fraction of the time and for tens of thousands of dollars less.   Who uses this software? The list of successful Entrepreneurs who use Clickfunnels software is staggering, including Akbar Skeik, Trey Lewellen, John Lee Dumas, and about 56,000 other Entrepreneurs from around the world. Even Robert Kiyosaki and Dan Kennedy wrote the forwards to the books Expert Secrets and DotCom Secrets.     What is a Sales Funnel - Finial Thoughts I could just write out in a couple sentences technically what is a sales funnel but that will not explain the complete picture. That's why I would suggest you listen to this complete episode of The Expat Money Show and then claim your free 14-Day Trial of Clickfunnels here.   Take the 14-Days free trial... take the free training... beat the hell out of the software! Learn everything you can about it and discover how easy and powerful it is... then make the decision if it is right for you or not. That will actually answer your question of what is a sales funnel, and more important than knowing what is a sales funnel you will understand how to use it to take your ideas and turn them into an additional stream of income, which at the end of the day is what I am always trying to help you to do on The Expat Money Show.   Always Remember, Endeavour to Greatness Mikkel Thorup

Why you need to use Facebook Live Videos to grow your business today, even if you are shy Earlier in the year I was a guest on Trish Leto's Show - The Expert Connection - and I had such a good experience I thought it would be fun to ask Trish onto The Expat Money Show to talk about her experiences as an expert with Facebook Live Videos, why businesses need to be doubling down on Facebook Live Videos and how you can really make your Facebook Live Videos shine.   Why should you care about Facebook Live Videos? Engagement  Facebook Live Videos get 3x the engagement as traditional videos on other platforms Indisputable Proof  People can steal and repurpose your written content and put their name to it. But Facebook Live Videos are proof you actually know what you are talking about, you are an expert and you are original It's Free  Hate to say it, but it's hard to beat free... broadcasting live to thousands of people used to be reserved for the big media companies, but now doing Facebook Live Videos gives you the same power and it's not going to cost you thousands of dollars Get Feedback in Real Time  You will know how people are receiving your content in realtime, your followers will be able to tell you if they are enjoying it or not and you can adjust by listening to them Native Content  By using the Facebook Live Videos feature you are using actual native content to Facebook, and you will organically drive more traffic to your Facebook business page   Tips even if you are shy or are nervous on camera: You don't actually need to record yourself, feel free to do a screen share of what you are teaching and let the content be the visual Start by doing an interview based show (Similar to The Expat Money Show) and allow the interviewee to provide the majority of the content Invite a friend onto your Facebook Live Video and have a conversation And remember... even if you mess up, make mistakes say the wrong thing, whatever... it's okay... people are forgiving, Facebook Live Videos are not supposed to be perfect   Here is a fabulous article from Facebook itself on how to use FB Live!  Enjoy!   Books we Discuss: Expert Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Finding Your Message, Building a Tribe, and Changing the World by Russell Brunson DotCom Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Growing Your Company Online by Russell Brunson Bluefishing: The Art of Making Things Happen by Steve Sims Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence - and How You Can, Too by Gary Vaynerchuk     Coaches, Courses, and Consultants we discuss: Dale Hensel Grant Cardone Russel Brunson   Where you can reach out to Trish Leto: Make sure to join Trish Leto's Private Facebook Group - Making it Rain with the Hustlers!

Next, to communication and information features, the platform provides a wallet for the invested assets as well as allows to buy and sell again these investments. Investment-associated experiences are provided together with a strong network of business partners fulfilling the service promise   HOW TOKENIZATION OF ASSETS WORKS ON THE TEND PLATFORM First, an asset undergoes the procedure of a due diligence to authenticate the asset The asset is then split up in parts/shares and the associated experience per share is defined The result is certified and the individual shares are put on the blockchain to be registered and be tradable thereafter       Final Thoughts This was a fun episode to record and our conversation on thought experiments and how to foster creativity is excellent in the second half of the episode.

EP 015: Eyal Hertzog – Why Bancor A Decentralize Liquidity Network Will Change The World
Why Bancor A Decentralize Liquidity Network Will Change The World. We are joined by Eyal Hertzog the Co-Founder of The Bancor Network a top 100 Cryptocurrency Token. In this interview, we talk in depth about not just Bancor and what it will do in the world but the future of money as a concept. We dive deep on the liquidity problems that face the landscape and why longtail products are so important.   Eyal Hertzog makes some interesting points about user-generated content in the case of video and now with the possibility of user-generated money. When you understand the implications of this you can really understand why Cryptocurrency is changing the world and why it is here to stay.         In the case of the Bancor Network when you remove the need for counterparty and third party people or organizations and keep Cryptocurrency as decentralized as possible it is incredibly interesting and important.   You can learn more about the Bancor Network here: Website: https://about.bancor.network/ Telegram: https://t.me/bancor   Highlights to understand about the Bancor Network No Spread - Low-cost conversions thanks to a non-profit automated market maker Continuous Liquidity - Convert any token at any time regardless of buyers and sellers or trade volume No Counterparty Risk - Buy and sell through smart contracts, no deposits, no exchanges No Registration Required - On-chain conversions directly from your web3 wallet Predictable Price Slippage - The Bancor Formula incorporates transaction size and needs no order book so prices are transparent Backwards Compatible - Any existing ERC20 token can integrate into the Bancor Network with no code changes or fees   From the Bancor Networks Website: The Bancor Protocol is a new standard for cryptocurrencies called Smart Tokens™.  They are autonomously and continuously convertible to other tokens in the network at algorithmically calculated rates. The protocol utilizes “connector” modules, which hold balances of other ERC20 tokens within a smart contract. The Bancor Formula constantly recalculates prices to maintain balance between Smart Tokens and their connectors.   Benefits The Bancor Protocol is a technical revolution allowing tokens to be converted without matching two parties with opposite wants. The magic is in the math. With a simple formula, balancing buys and sells so that every token in the network maintains a formulaic relationship to others. The result is continuous liquidity regardless of trade volume or exchange listings.   Amazing Entrepreneurs I can see you are loving the space of crypto currency.  Here is another great interview with Austin Kimm about Crypterium A Crypto Bank for Crypto People - How they are changing the landscape   We have been fortunate enough to have several million dollar entrepreneurs grace our podcast.  Here are two of my favourite, and I know they'll be yours too!   EP 75: Grant Cardone ~ Grant talks to us about the millionaire mindset and how you can get there as well!   EP 72: Jay Papasan - Co-authoring with Gary Keller of KellerWillian Real Estate, they wrote The One Thing.  Honestly, if you are struggling in the entreprenur world, please listen to this amazing episode, it could change your life.   Here are a few articles you might light browsing through.  $147 Million Lost in Bitcoin Final Thoughts I think that Bancor is a company that people should really pay attention to and I am following their progress intently.

EP 013: James Richards & Tim Smith – Portrait Of An Artist As An Entrepreneur
Portrait of an Artist as an Entrepreneur. In this episode of The Expat Money Show, we do something a little different... I wanted to show how working together with a partner and being able to leverage each other's strengths can lead to success. We take a look at the creative side matched with the business side and how splitting roles allows you to focus on "That one thing" that really makes you shine.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=C-b4vDUoQf0   We are joined by James Richards and Tim Smith. I first met James Richards through a mutual entrepreneurial friend, Michael Chiang (From Episode #11 where he teaches us to create an app from scratch) James invited me for a private screening of Tim's work at his downtown penthouse apartment in Manhatten. I was struck how raw and uncensored the work was. Through many (often inebriated) discussions with James and others, I learned a lot about the underground art scene in New York and the entrepreneurial spirit that runs through it. This was a really interesting episode to create and I hope you get as much out of it as I did...   In this episode you are going to learn:   From the business side: Tips for curating your own collection as an investment Learning from your mistakes Why having a personal network is so paramount   From the creative side: What's hot in the art scene today Even artists need mentors How to be honest with yourself Why you need to always look forward   Check out the guy's amazing work at: Tim Smiths work currently on display at Avra Art Gallery: https://avraart.com/ Website: https://www.theartworkoftimsmith.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/timsmithart/?hl=en Their VR exhibition: https://www.eazel.net/   Special shout out Tim's amazing art mentor, Mike Bell: Website: http://www.belldogstudio.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mikebelldog/?hl=en   Books we discuss: Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield Do the Work: Overcome Resistance and Get Out of Your Own Way Paperback by Steven Pressfield Turning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life's Work by Steven Pressfield Principles: Life and Work Hardcover by Ray Dalio Market Wizards, Updated: Interviews With Top Traders Paperback by Jack D. Schwager Outliers: The Story of Success Paperback by Malcolm Gladwell Startupland: How Three Guys Risked Everything to Turn an Idea into a Global Business by Mikkel Svane and Carlye Adler   Final Thoughts I loved this episode because after listening you can see that an artist really is an entrepreneur. It doesn't matter if you are opening a restaurant and selling food or if you are putting oil on canvas, at the end of the day you are creating something, and really it's the mindset that sets you apart. I hope you enjoy this episode which I affectionately named Portrait of an Artist as an Entrepreneur on The Expat Money Show. Safe travels...

EP 011: Michael Chiang – Ninja Steps to Building An App. Entrepreneurs Are Athletes
Ninja Steps to Building an App. Entrepreneurs are Athletes. Michael Chiang joins us on The Expat Money Show to discuss app development. We break down 4 simple steps to building an app and why these steps could save you 6-12 months of wasted time and effort...   Michael is an Entrepreneur based out of Manhatten, he specializing in app development in the pet space and is now moving into mobile games.   Michael is the Co-Founder of FitBark.com, FitBark is a small, colourful device that you attach to your dog’s collar. It monitors activity levels, quality of sleep, distance travelled, calories burned, and overall health and behaviour 24/7. In the show, I refer to it as a Fitbit for dogs, but I quickly was able to see, it is a lot more than that. Fitbark is available in more than 125 countries worldwide.   We discuss Michaels newest venture, JoyRide, it is a mobile game you play while taking an Uber. It is a 10 question trivia game that if won will pay for your entire Uber ride as a prize. Check out PlayJoyRide.com to learn more.   You can find Michael Chiang at: Instagram: iAmMikeChiang Twitter: iAmMikeChiang     4 key steps to building an app: 1. Share your idea with your trusted circle and even go outside your circle to get opinions. Sharing your idea will help you flush out the concepts and force you to articulate them to someone else. What is their response? Do they understand? Is your product needed in the marketplace? These are all questions that must be answered before moving on, and you are not able to be objective enough without asking others for feedback.   2. Build a team. The right team can make anything happen. You can start with your personal network, ask people you respect if they can recommend someone in this space. Trust is such a massive factor when starting a new project. Make sure your team understands your vision and help guide them to the outcome you want.   3. Create your Minimum Viable Product (MVP). You can build a rough MVP in a weekend that you will be able to take to market and test. Let people see it and feel what it is like to use it, even a very basic MVP can be extremely valuable in showing you if you have a product worth moving forward with or not. If it is not going to work, it is better to fail fast then waste 6 -12 months of your life on an idea that will never have wings.   4. Make sure you are bankrolled properly. Capital is extremely important in the early stages of developing your idea. Aim at 10-20k USD to properly roll out a decent MVP and test the market. If you need to pivot your idea to something new you will really need the extra funds.   Topics on this episode of The Expat Money Show: Why pivoting an idea in a new direction can make you money The beginning of Augmented Reality apps (AR) Why 200k downloads in 4 days can still be considered a failure Looking for problems to fix can make you a good entrepreneur How having the mindset of an athlete can set you up for success in business   Books we discuss: Malcolm Gladwell Outliers: The Story of Success The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures     Phil Knight (This book was also recommended by Ryan Lee, an expert on books, in Episode #8) Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike     It was fantastic having Michael on the show, if you would like to get in touch with him you can hit him up on Twitter at @iammikechiang  And If you enjoyed learning about what steps to building an app you can leave us a review on iTunes by clicking HERE :)

EP 006: Tony Medina – Understanding Economies of Scale Through A Real Life Practical Example
Understanding Economies of Scale Through A Real Life Practical Example.   Economies of Scale When I used to read random textbooks on economics a few years ago, economies of scale was not a topic I paid much attention to... In this interview with Tony Medina, we talk in-depth about why economies of scale are so important when looking at a business model and why your first instinct may be completely wrong...   Tony Medina is the CEO of Seoul Guide Medical, a private company that manages top calibre plastic surgery hospitals in Seoul Korea as well as works with one of the best Dental Surgeons on the planet, Dr Chulmin Bae from Oaks Dental Clinic in Gangnam.   In this Episode of The Expat Money Show, we discuss Tony's experiences as an Expat Entrepreneur for the last 10 plus years living in Seoul Korea. He shares a hilarious (and also scary) story of travelling to meet a previous high-level client in Kazakstan.   Wikipedia Explains Economies of Scale as: "In microeconomics, economies of scale are the cost advantages that enterprises obtain due to their scale of operation (typically measured by amount of output produced), with cost per unit of output decreasing with increasing scale. Economies of scale apply to a variety of organizational and business situations and at various levels, such as a business or manufacturing unit, plant or an entire enterprise." But that does not give us a very good understanding as Expats trying to create your own businesses or to increase our income. Tony Medina uses the example of why a country like Korea can move so much further ahead then somewhere like the USA in something like Cosmetic Surgery. Listen to the full Episode (above) to hear the full story.   You can learn more about Tony Medina and his company at: Website: www.SeoulGuideMedical.com IG: seoulguidemedical   In this episode we discuss: Why you should not get arrested in Kazakhstan Understand economies of scale How to solve a problem The number one skill every entrepreneur should focus on     Books we discuss: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle The Gate to Women's Country by Sheri S.

Tony Medina has been one of my closest friends for many years and we have travelled all over the planet together (not to mention the 60 some-odd times I have gone to Korea to visit him for work) and I can attest first hand to the success Tony has created for himself in a country completely different from where we grew up in and in a language that is not the easiest to learn...

Thirty percent of the world's business people are on Linkedin. And now with Microsoft purchasing it, they are now integrating it into their ecosystem. So it's only going to increase. Mikkel Thorup: How much did they purchase it for? Tyron Giuliani: Twenty-six billion dollars. Mikkel Thorup: Twenty-six billion dollars. Wow. Tyron Giuliani: Yeah. Pretty crazy... Mikkel Thorup: So that's Microsoft's play into social media, I suppose? Tyron Giuliani: Well, you think about the data, right? They've already got a billion people using Microsoft. Now you add another five hundred million and you integrate that into your sales software. You integrate it into your Outlook. You integrate it into every part of the process. Window's itself is now integrated, when you use Windows 10. It can integrate so you can get popups of notifications of Linkedin. So they're looking at it as a massive data ecosystem. And, if you're selling dynamic ... their CRM Sales Program is Dynamics 365. So, instead of having a blank canvass, you can open up Dynamics 365 and you can pull a person in and it sucks in all their Linkedin data. When you do a sales call to these people, it's no longer cold. You've got all this information available without you doing any work. So, you know, they're smart. They've done a good job.
